Cécile Emmanuelle Borra aka CUNTINA COUTURE
Cécile Emmanuelle Borra aka CUNTINA COUTURE is a French born London based artist, graduate of Goldsmiths College. Working predominantly in installation, she uses a variety of medias including film, photography, text, wallpaper, textile, etc., as well as found objects. Drawing from a feminist perspective and from the writings of Judith Butler, Giles Deleuze and Paul B. Preciado, her art practice explores notions of "desire" and examines the commodification of the body, and most particularly continues her longstanding representation of men as objects of the female gaze.
Selected shows include "Kaleidoscopes", Sketch (London), "Helmut Newton Ladies Nights", Royal Academy (London), "Feminist Practices in Dialogue", ICA (London), "We All Have A Problem With Representation", The Showroom, (London), "In Whose Eyes", Beaconsfield Gallery, (London), "In Between", Saatchi Gallery (London), "Re-Sign", K-salon Gallery (Berlin), "Where The Men Met", Kulturhuset (Stockholm), "Some Like It Wrong", Nuovo Cinema Palazzo, (Rome) and "Lova", Space Timbaud, Paris. Residencies and grants include StudioAlfresco, @lizziestudioalfresco, (London), AA2A at Chelsea College of Arts (London), ULTRAMICHKA (Pau), Firstsite (Colchester) and NFK (Stockholm).
